We had a fantastic night here.....after the pubs close you can go here and enjoy a late night flutter. Free drink while you are at the tables too :)

“Pleasantly Surprised-Great Night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2011

I recently went to the Sporting Emporium with my girlfriend courtesy of a Groupon-Citydeal voucher and I must say it was a brilliant night. I would never have thought to come here for a night out, but I will mostly certainly be back.

When we arrived we were greeted by a friendly member of staff who told us a bit about what to expect. We were given a tour of the venue and handed gift vouchers to use upon our return (which I will most certainly be using).

After the brief tour, we were given two glasses of Champagne and shown to our seats. We both had lovely main courses, followed by some delicious dessert. The staff were great and were constantly on hand to fill up our glasses.

After this, we tried our hand at gambling using the free chips we were given. If things were good enough we happened to walk away with €15 for a taxi home.

I would certainly recommend the Sporting Emporium for any sort of occasion and I am very much looking forward to going back.

Thanks again,
Tom

“Dublins Top Attraction not to be missed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2011

Was here last week with my dad and what a night we had. We are both novices in the Casino world but that didnt stop us having fun. From the moment we arrived the chap on reception was so friendly he then organised a tour of the Casino for us with Steve.Every where was spotless and the place had a real warm feel to it. Following the tour we had dinner. The menu could have had a better choice but when the food arrived it was excellent. After dinner Steve then gave us quick lesson on how to play roulette and black jack. We tried all the games and had great fun. This casino needs to up there in the top ten must do attractions in Dublin. Looking forward to making a return visit soon

“Great Night venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2011

I really enjoyed our visit to the sporting emporium. Great 'craic' as they say in Ireland.
You must be a member to enter but can become a member at the door. You get chips free to the value of the membership cost so the entry is effectively free.
We arrived very late, but it stays open until 6am (we didn't stay quite that late)
The people are very friendly and helpful there......and for a beginner are very good at explaining things. The ultimate fun came from the fact that I won a little while all my experienced casino-going friends just had fun!!!

“Great venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2011

This is an excellent venue to top off a great night in Dublin!
We visited here on our last night in the Irish Capital city and wished we could have had another night to return. Not only is it a great casino, there is entertainment too.
While the food is not Michelin star it is super for a late night snack!
